I came across about 10,000 board feet of mostly hardwood that was in the attic of a building in Findlay, Ohio. Prior to 1929 the building had house Hart Desk Mfg.. They closed in 1929 and the lumber sat in the attic until I bought it and brought it to St. Louis recently. It is very dirty and some of it is buggy, but there is some unbelievable wood. Mostly walnut, cherry and quarter-sawn oak. Some slabs 16/4 thick & up to 18’ wide and 16’ long.
Has anyone seen a lot of antique lumber like this? Not reclaimed, but unused milled hardwood lumber. I think it had to be all old growth, right? Last, any ideas what I should do with it or what its worth?
